Poor Leanne and Ilke so close!

Nicole Sewell that was a dismal performance!

Tameishi got 5 games again, I see improvement in her perfrmances this year! she got 5 games from Rosenfield, 3 from Sewell, 5 from Dittmann late last year!

I am surprised no Japanese site has posted Fukuoka results of today :confused: .

Information I have (thanks to the person who gave me this result ;) ) is that Jie and Zi have won their first two qualifying matches :) .

No thanks for the results ;) .

I was convinced Zi would make it with her style of play :eek: . Maybe her serve was a bit weak for grass :confused: .

Good performance of Jie here :D . Her backhand must have been deadly on this surface :) .
